Also, the pages are easy to reproduce, which is key. I get so irritated with oddly sized books. Why else would I buy this book? To use with my classes.
Alternatively, the exercises can be employed as "warmups", wherein the whole class can discuss an exercise, followed by a second exercise for an individual.
These classroom activities were designed by a veteran teacher, perhaps why I believe they are best utilized in either upper-level or honors classes. They will not easily yield their best to a casual reader. Over time, this leads to superior results in the reading and writing skills at the heart of the communication arts.
Thanks GOD such professors still exist. These are People who actually teach you to read instead of telling about their great achievements in reading, editing, writing, etc. in their books.
